Why reorganization is important?
In accordance with Vermont State Law, this year's Party Reorg is when elections of Executive Committee Officers occur. BTV Dems Executive Committee Officers include Chair, Vice Chair, Recording Officer, Treasurer, and Vice Treasurer. If you would like to be a candidate for one of these positions you must notify the Party no later than noon on Tuesday, September 5. You can notify the Party by emailing email@example.com.
If you would like to serve on the County Committee, please indicate so on the registration form. Since Burlington has 61 delegates (as well as alternate positions), the selection of these positions will be done by signing up and a vote by acclimation (unless there are more candidates than there are positions).
Finally, the meeting will also be an opportunity to hear from local and state elected leaders, as well as learn about plans to grow Party participation in the years to come.
Who can participate?
In order to vote at the meeting, you must be a registered Burlington voter. Also, pursuant to 17 V.S.A. §2317, a "voter shall not vote in a town, county, or State caucus of more than one party in the same 12 month period, nor shall any voter simultaneously hold membership on the committees of more than one political party.”
